Daylight Enhancing Boutique, Hong Kong
Making the most of the abundant natural daylight flooding in from two full walls of windows, Japanese architects Case Real have designed a boutique for luxury retailer Joyce inside Hong Kong’s Lee Gardens shopping centre.
All the back-room business space (fitting rooms, a sewing room and storage) is kept within one central core to maintain as much open space as possible across the sweeping shop floor.
The minimalist interiors echo the structural qualities of the building with a layout that is, according to the architects, inspired by the “unintentionally formed urban space” of Hong Kong.
Merchandise is displayed on mannequins and display racks adjacent to windows, bathing as much product as possible in natural daylight.
